Peggy Ployhar invited me to be a guest on SPED Homeschool. I met Peggy last fall at the 2to1 Conference for Christian homeschool mom bloggers and small businesswomen.
SPED Homeschooling ‘s mission is to connect special education homeschooling families with quality information, materials, services, and support.
Peggy Ployhar and I had an engaging discussion about my experience with managing life, homeschool, and business with a chronic illness.
Peggy and I didn’t really talk much about managing a business with chronic illness. I did work part-time while homeschooling four children, driving teens to work and back, and teaching them how to drive. Life was crazy busy then. It was a hard time because I was still trying to heal from Lyme and tick-borne infections. Lyme disease is expensive to treat. With six of us needing treatment it was helpful for me to work even though I was also homeschooling.
There were a few things that really helped me keep my sanity. Some of those things that helped us were staying on a good schedule, having all the kids help with chores, and making dinner right after breakfast.
over the past three years, I’ve been running my own business as a Virtual Assistant. I’m also blogging and homeschooling my middle-school-aged son. No matter what season I find myself in, I like to keep busy. That means I need to be a little extra organized.
I hope you enjoy this interview.
